Fell For It

This was back in 2002, so the details are a little sketchy. The salesman came to the door, I was home alone with my two small children, ages 1 and 4. The 1 year old was terrified of vacuums and cried and hid the entire time.

I thing the price might have been $2500 back then but I'm not sure. Anyhow, I got sucked in and agreed to buy it. My husband came home from work and was livid that I had bought it. I contacted them the next day and had it picked up. When he came, he said "I know you really want the machine. What if I could sell it to you for $500?" I stood firm and said no.

The guy went to his car and allegedly made a phone call. He came back in and said his manager said I could have it for $750. I said no, and he took the vacuum with him. My husband came home from work and I told him what happened and he said, "why didn't you buy it?" So he called them back and they brought it back over.

I got to say, it's a darn good vacuum. That crying 1 year old is now almost 20 and that vacuum still works great.

Sounds like your husband needs to learn how to make a decision and stick to it. He goes from being livid you purchased it making you return it to why didn’t you buy it???

That’s enough to make anyone nuts! Glad it worked out for you.
